Capacity 10L and 48 Grammes
Multiple Compartments 1 main pocket
Compact Design folds up into a very compact, small ball
The volume of each backpack is measured using a standardised method: we fill the main compartment as well as each pocket with little balls. Then we empty these balls into a graduated container, which gives the equivalent volume in litres.
All components are approved in laboratory tests, including:fabric, buckles, straps, foam, zips, etc. Example, for a fabric: resistance to wear, tearing, colour-fastness in UV rays, washing, waterproofing, etc A final test on the finished product simulates the kind of treatment to which it will be subjected over several years, to assess the strength of the fabrication. The backpack is weighted then placed on a dummy which then reproduces the movement of fast walking through thousands of cycles.
Made forhikers looking for an extra backpack for a short tour around their refuge or bivouac. An ultra-compact, ultra-lightweight extra backpack for short hikes, which folds up into a small ball and can be stored in a backpack pocket.
